Living Beyond Breast Cancer's Young Women's Initiative provides information and support focused on the unique needs of young women diagnosed with breast cancer. If you were diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 45, our programs and services may be of interest to you. Program topics include dating and sexuality, pregnancy, early menopause, parenting and body image, to name a few.
We want to make finding support and staying up-to-date easy for you, which is why we offer three ways for you to get connected:
I feel like I’m not alone in this situation. There’s [women] my age … people who actually care about other women, not just putting them down. I feel so at ease.
Find support and connect with other young women impacted by breast cancer all over the country in our closed Facebook group. In this group you can have honest discussions with other women about being a parent with a breast cancer diagnosis, dealing with weight gain from treatment, body image after surgery, and more. Ask questions and get the support you need from others who understand.
Get the latest on breast cancer research and personal invitations to our young women’s programs, texted straight to your phone. Subscribe to stay up-to-date on the newest treatments, clinical trials, side effect tips, and healthcare information. These regular free text messages ensure you’re never out of the loop.
